    or reinstall youtube through market.

    skyfire should work too. if you want a new browser and youtube i think this is the way to go.

    Skyfire works the best with Youtube. You can also just find the .apk. Let me see...Youtube Apk. - Download . Hope this might help. It's also got a few other .apks listed. ^^.

    did you back up before you deleted? You should be able to defrost or restore if you used tibu.

    Thanks so much, I had the same problem with youtube, I rooted my phone, backed up with tibu, but could not restore youtube, got the .apk file installed it, but as soon as the install screen was done it said "could not install" so I just kept searching for anything other than flashing phone back to stock, you guys are the best!

    Thanks from a very happy newcomer!!!!!!

    Kimmy :D

    Yea, the ascend needs a browser or app that will convert the flash to a format the ascend can play as the ascend CANNOT PLAY FLASH!!!

    Well, the app is different than the website, the videos are converted to mp4 mobile format. That's why the website has videos that are not available on the app.
